Guided reading is an important part of our instructional journey in helping our students develop self-extending systems through which they can successfully and independently read a variety of texts. The purpose of engaging students in guided reading is to facilitate their growth as independent readers. To become proficient readers, students need opportunities to read more challenging texts with teacher support.
SCHOOLWIDE’S GUIDED READING COLLECTIONS
Schoolwide’s Guided Reading Collections include carefully selected fiction and nonfiction texts for Emergent (levels A–C), Early (levels D–G), Transitional (two collections: levels H–J and K–M), or Fluent (levels N–Q) readers.
Each collection also comes with a spiral-bound book of Guided Reading Plans matched with the texts. These detailed plans show teachers where to focus before, during, and after the read to support readers’ key strategic actions on texts: self-monitoring and self-correcting, word-solving, comprehension, and fluency.
